    I don't get it.

    Honey, I shrunk the Vantage??

    Why try to be nippy when you can glide?

    Average maximum emissions quotas across a manufacturer's product range. If they can sell some of these, it will bring down the mean.

    Thanks. That makes more sense.

    I couldn't see why they had bypassed the smaller hatchback and gone straight for the micro city car.

    Are the quotas affected by numbers made or numbers sold?
